Meet Our DJ

DJ Gemini Gilly

DJ GEMINI GILLY is a Midwest-based DJ and curator. Growing up on a variety of genres from her older brother's collection (East Coast and Southern Hip-Hop, Funk, Disco, 90s R&B), she gained a love for music at a young age, occasionally stealing his CDs to listen to her favorite tracks. After countless times of being the designated AUX cord operator, she recognized that DJing/curating was her true passion and embarked on her journey as DJ GEMINI GILLY.

DJ GEMINI GILLY fuses her #blackgirlmagic and love for black music with creative mixing and blending to create an eclectic set that brings people together. Additionally, since teaching herself how to DJ in 2018, DJ GEMINI GILLY joined the World Champion Milwaukee Bucks DJ Squad and has performed for Summerfest World Festival, Soho House, Black Futures Lab, and countless others. In 2023, DJ GEMINI GILLY curated her own event series, GEMS ONLY, which celebrates black community and black cultures of all kinds through music.

Beyond DJing, DJ GEMINI GILLY has her master's degree in social work and actively advocates for black folx. She hopes that she can inspire other black youth to take their passions and translate them into careers.
